To say this quarter has been tough is an understatement and I don't know if I have ever felt this overwhelmed. Remember that feeling of being a young hormone induced teenager. That peer pressure and feeling of needing to be accepted, of being wanted and liked by that certain person in the front row who maturated a little earlier. Well, that is how out of control, stressed and overwhelmed these six classes have me feeling right now. At times an internal debate is happening as to whether this stress is worth it.

I totally understand! I feel the same way and have that same internal debate...pretty much every day. Hang in there!

I do not have your course load so I cannot entirely relate, however, know I comisserate. What I did for me is chunk it up.

This day I do this. Tomorrow, I do that. Setting tangible, obtainable goals helps me feel like I am actually moving forward instead of spinning my wheels.

And then, I indulge in chocolates!

Keep your head up, you are going to be awesome when done!!!

Me, too. (Though I admit to being a bit reassured that others across the country are living in the same space. And others have before us. We will make it!)

6 classes! Holy crap! You are my hero.
I would have drunk myself into a stupor and be lying in the gutter if I attempted that course load. You rock!

Amber, new twin boys and your are in a NP program, well if you can do it.

AD2B, you're right and I try to keep doing something each day.

MamaDoodle, I keep telling myself that.

RnRaquel, sitting on a gulf coast beach and drinking has crossed my mind.

Oh my goodness I agree with what everyone else wrote especially AD2B, just breaking off a little piece at a time. It's like you can't eat an elephant whole but you can one piece at a time. Just breathe in and out and take it one day at a time. This overwhelming feeling seems to be washing over me as well.

You can even eat a whole elephant if you eat it one bite at a time!

Good luck!

I feel for you. I am not looking forward to my course I am taking starting January 2012 :(

Zazzy and CC, I never developed a taste for elephant.
Overwhelmed seems to be the common denominator between most, but nobody is going to give that up and quit school now.
